Something Else About Normal

Until you are ready to think in terms that are not normal (usual, common, average, standard, and so on), you are not going to accomplish much more than normal things. Thinking in abnormal terms means you will have to leave your comfort zone. Normal is comfortable. Abnormal is uncomfortable - at first.

The trick is turning the abnormal into the normal. It requires some trial and error. It requires commitment. It requires thinking outside the box. It requires the willingness to imagine something most cannot. It requires forward thinking. It requires belief in more than what is normal. Most people who have changed life as we know it (see a few of my examples in my previous post) have done so by taking something most people believed to be impossible or foolish and turned it into the norm.
